Thank you for your interest, but the Salon has reached its capacity.

In today’s world of interactive design, products are designed, built, run and maintained by a wide cast of characters. Unless you’re a one-(wo)man design and coding machine, you’re probably grappling with the intersection of design and code on a daily basis.

Join AIGA DC and Geoff Silverstein of Friendly Design in a members-only Salon to discuss best practices and processes for interactive designers. How do you effectively show your clients interactivity before development? When should you code-it-yourself, and when should you call in a pro? When should development start? How can you build an efficient workflow with all involved parties?

Bring your experiences and questions to share with the group to help explore a more streamlined process for future interactive projects.

Registration for this event is required, and will open at noon on Wednesday, September 4. AIGA DC Salons are free, intimate roundtable discussions limited to 15 AIGA members only. Want to enjoy this member benefit? Check out AIGA’s new membership structure and join today.

Please plan to arrive at Teaism around 7:30 AM to allow time to purchase breakfast refreshments and chat with other attendees. We will start promptly at 8:00 AM.
